On February 27, 2014, NASA and JAXA (The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) launched the Global Precipitation Measurement Core Observatory. The satellite will link a constellation of international satellites and provide more accurate precipitation and climate data. Come learn about the mission from GPM Master Teacher Nancy Gifford during our Rain EnGauge event. The presentation will begin with an overview of the mission with time for questions and answers. Then participants will engage in hands-on activities on the water cycle and the mission:

  • Investigate the NASA Space Mission!
  • Discover how the GPM can see inside storms!
  • Measure the effects of rain in your community!
